Why had no-one already invented this? Are we stupid? The entire human race is obsessed with putting more little plastic covers inside drink bottle lids and laying down green sandpaper like material at street crossings, and it’s not until 2009 that someone bothers to create the iHoop .
Come on. It’s not exactly rocket science. No wonder aliens haven’t bothered to contact us yet. They’ve probably got heaps of amazing cures, alternate fuel sources and video games ready to give us but until now were like “screw ‘em, they haven’t even put speakers and an iPod dock into a portable basketball ring yet, let ‘em develop their minds a bit longer.”

As Nick Hornby wrote in his book High Fidelity, it’s not what you’re like, it’s what you like that counts. It seems that this is equally true in death than it is in life. According to the UK Bereavement Register, the top funeral song for the last quarter of 2008 was none other than James Blunt’s Goodbye My Lover. The list also included Angels by Robbie Williams and The Police classic Every Breath You Take (poor taste perhaps? – Ed).
Come on people. We’re talking about the ultimate musical full stop for the end of your freaking life. James Blunt? Robbie Williams? Man, I can’t wait for some cool people to start dying so we can finally go to funerals without wanting to kill ourselves.
Jeannie had a ticket to Thailand. Then those protests happened and her dad stopped her from going. Is she bummed out?
Well, I’m at home in Adelaide… Pretty awesome huh? Should be on a beach in Thailand but my worrywort dad cracked the sads after watching the news. Not much to report. Ate toast for breakfast. Might do the dishes after writing this.
Wish you were here! Jeannie, xox
